Details of talks given by Les Haswell
Born and raised in Scotland now maturing in Hampshire.
On leaving school, I completed a five-year engineering apprenticeship, hating almost every minute of it, except when I was getting up to mischief. I then found my niche in sales and began a career in selling a range of products and services. Along the way, I owned a taxi/private hire business later took ownership of a 50 cover licenced restaurant.
Since then I have spent much of my working life in various business development or management roles, mainly associated with the international oil & gas industry. I spent the last fifteen years of my career as a Business Development Consultant, advising and assisting small to medium-sized companies to build their markets and turnover. I organised industry events, looked after incoming trade delegations and took outward trade missions to various countries. My talk is a lighthearted tale of my travels and adventures along the way. Now semi-retired, I have taken to writing novels and last year, had my first one published, with a contract to deliver a second to the publisher I am a past President of my local Rotary and chair my local Parish Council.
